dealing with the deficit? that sounds logical as a pattern for the speech because they're the hot topics. >> when you're president you can't just deal with one issue and the economy is the top priority for most americans. the president will i think rightly address the issue and talk about the issue of gun violence, definitely talk about climate issue and the issue of immigration and he'll ask congress to do something. this is not the previous congress was not a very active congress and this congress doesn't appear to be shaping up to be much better and the president attempt to in the future act by executive order and make decisions in that way if congress is not willing to do anything and step up to the plate and i think that molly made an excellent point, too, about the messenger and the message of the republicans divided about because the real issue for the gop is not just the message. they can't agree on the messenger, the reason why rubio and paul both giving responses to the president's state of the union address. >> we have seen that and you can have as senator manchin said

economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and doesn't add up. i'm much more of the mind to be proactively looking at infrastructure investment like many of the business advisers told president obama should happen. people from commerce, from industry. i get it. that won't happen as long as house republicans are dead set against it. and what we're left with is unfortunately in my view a detente to put the discussion in the frame the republicans want. what about deficits? we have a jobs crisis in this country. not a deficit crisis. to me, the whole conversation has been pushed to the right further than it should be. >> and karen, on a last note, in anticipation of the president's speech, the white house released numbers on the people affected by the cuts. i believe around 600,000, between 600,000 and 800,000 suffering as a result of cuts to food stamps and other program that is people need to survive these days and at leas

manufacturing, energy, education, national security and the deficit. real achievable plans that will lead to new jobs. >> top republicans including senator mcconnell already critical of the speech. >> i strongly suspect the white house will subject us to yet another campaign blitz. frankly, i could write the scripts myself and will be told the president's hands are tied by the sequester he proposed, signed and refuses to get rid of. >> we learned the president will make a major announcement of afghanistan announcing that 34,000 u.s. troops will return home from the region exactly one year from today. that's about half the troops there now. joining us now, maryland congressman chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee. thank you for joining us. >> great to be with you, tamron. >> first, what are the expectations for the president tonight? >> well, i think as you said the president's going to lay out his plan for xik growth, for job creation but focusing on the fact it is not good enough just to have economic growth for the folks already at the very top. that we need br

more sweeping plan of long-term deficit reduction when they couldn't do that, this automatic cut put in to place, in to law. now republicans saying that they expect it will happen and in part are okay with that. because it would automatically begin achieving some spending cuts that the two sides have not been able to come to terms with in another way. you heard the president saying there needs to be more time and the real wrinkle now is that republicans thought the tax issue of increasing rates and more revenue just resolved and from their point of view, they thought no more taxes. that issue's off the table but democrats and the president are talking about things like the famous corporate jet loophole and other things to bring in more money. republicans are saying, no. this is going to be one of those standoff moments. will there be a lot of tension between both sides to try to figure this out? >> absolutely. 2:30 eastern time, the professionive caucus to introduce legislation to eliminate the sequester and seeing a lot of move chess peets pieces on the board. >> reporter: absolutel
